Wolff doubtful, two other DBs probable

PHILADELPHIA – Philadelphia Eagles safety Earl Wolff practiced throughout the week, leading to hope the rookie would be able to play Sunday at Minnesota.

Wolff was listed as doubtful on Friday’s official injury report, however, making his return from a knee injury unlikely. Veteran Patrick Chung would continue to start in Wolff’s place.

Wolff said he would travel with the team to Minneapolis and make a final determination Sunday.

The Eagles’ secondary was surprisingly overrepresented on the week’s otherwise sparse injury report. Cornerbacks Brandon Boykin (hip) and Cary Williams (hamstring) both appeared without warning during the week. Boykin was on the first report Wednesday, suggesting he was hurt in Sunday’s game against Detroit.

Williams appeared for the first time Thursday. He and Boykin were listed as probable Friday and are expected to play.

The Eagles have been practicing indoors on artificial turf all week, which could contribute to minor soreness and leg injuries.

The only other Eagle on the injury report, linebacker and special teamer Najee Goode, was also listed as doubtful. Goode pulled a hamstring two weeks ago against Arizona.
